Manchester United have completed the signing of former Arsenal youngster DJ Buffonge on a scholarship contract.
The midfielder, whose full name is Darren Raekwon McIntosh-Buffonge, has previously played for both Arsenal and Fulham’s academies.
And the 17-year-old has impressed enough on trial to earn a move to Old Trafford.
“DJ Buffonge has signed as a scholar for Manchester United following a successful trial,” a club statement read.
“The former Fulham prospect started the season in the Under-18 team and set up Zak Dearnley’s goal in the opening fixture at West Brom.
“However, a groin injury sustained in a 3-2 win over Derby County in late August cut short his progress.
“Despite the setback, United’s coaches had seen enough to complete a deal on 13 November for the creative midfielder.”
